Illini injury list

Hurt feelings

Coach Tim Beckman's policy on Illini football injuries can best be summed up as follows: "No comment." As of the second half of last Saturday's game against Charleston Southern, at least 13 players were seen as out of uniform or otherwise unavailable. The list included:

— QB Nathan Scheelhaase

— C Graham Pocic

— RB Josh Ferguson

— WR Darius Millines

— TE Evan Wilson

— LB Houston Bates

— K Nick Immekus

— S Supo Sanni

— S Steve Hull

— LB Henry Dickinson

— OT Corey Lewis

— TE Justin Lattimore

— OL Tony Durkin

Scheelhaase and several others are expected back for Saturday night's game against Louisiana Tech, but it isn't clear whether that information will be released.

It seems clear to me that if they play on Saturday then they are ready.  This policy of not informing of injuries before hand seems to hurt only the sports writers who find that they have one less subject to write about.
